As part of the enhanced outreach program of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), a new platform named Samwad with Students (SwS) was launched in Bengaluru on Jan. 1, 2019.

Through the SwS initiative, ISRO aims to constantly engage youngsters across India to capture their scientific temperament. The new conversation mission will inspire students cutting across schools and colleges.

The first SwS event saw 40 wards and 10 teachers from select schools interact with ISRO Chairman Dr. K Sivan at the Anthariksh Bhavan. During the three-hour stay at ISRO HQ, the students were first briefed about the Indian space program and their benefits to the common man.
